Swiss label Cadenza have been living up to their unrivalled reputation as one of the strongest electronic music label’s out there having already released nine solo EP’s from long time Cadenza artist’s and exciting new family members since January this year. Striking while the iron’s hot they now announce ‘Cadenza68’ from Italian duo Shield vs Robytek with the ‘Way Of Life’ EP.

Meeting minds for ‘Way Of Life’, Italian Rebirth Records owner Shield and veteran producer Robytek fuse their individual virtues to create a two piece cut with a twist. No strangers to working together, Shield and Robytek have a cemented collaboration history with three notable releases under their belt to date.

‘Way Of Life’ opens with “Rendez-Vous” and an immediately arresting piano chord groove that sets the scene. With a firm nod to classic elements, the rounded keys sit against vacuum closed hat’s and ricocheting tambourine’s denoting a timeless house feel that continues until ‘Rendez-Vous’s’ end. Pushing forward the bass line captivates with demure beauty; warm, prowling and confident it binds the sexy female vocal and tinkering scattered synths. Whilst “Rendez-Vous” may harbour that raw old school sound, it’s fiercely modern in its production excellence and building arrangement.

On the B-side our Italian duo present EP title track “Way Of Life”. Contrastingly different to its predecessor, “Way Of Life” dives head first into wriggling percussion rhythms and twanging guitar riffs. Undoubtedly the absolute floor smasher of the two it builds, breaks and thunders for those irreplaceable late night moments on the dance floor when we are completely lost in the music. More than just a peak time dance track though, ‘Way Of Life’ explores jazzy saxophone swoons, exceptional live drum sections and swooshing beds to round out a mature and forward thinking house killer.

As an extra surprise, the ‘Way of Life’ EP boasts digital bonus track “Journey Of Hope” with an added Instrumental version. Rich and bassy with a diverging xylophone melody, “Journey Of Hope” spits with its trill Latino vocal section before a relentless appargiated synth comes through to drive the track into some serious depth and stomping territory. Climbing and dropping with a head strong punch - “Journey Of Hope” is not for the faint hearted and closes a thoroughly diverse EP.
